Tennessee Open For Business

openforbiz.pngTennessee Open For Business is a free program for Tennessee businesses that pledge not to discriminate against their employees or customers on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. That means that member businesses do not discriminate against gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender individuals or couples.  Members will get a listing on our website, a post on Facebook, and a window cling suitable for display in their storefront. The program is made possible through generous support of the Brooks Fund of the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee.

You can see a list of some of the current members of Tennessee Open For Business at this link

    I have always firmly believed in treating everyone fairly and honestly. Since opening Yellow Tree Photography, I have always left my doors open to any and all individuals or families searching for quality portraits from a local, professional photographer. Regardless of their gender, sexual orientation, race or anything that differentiates me from my client, I seek the differences we all have and strive to shed light on the different people in this world. It’s my mission to show people how beautiful being different can truly be! This is a cause I can fully support and get behind, and I will always show each of my clients the same amount of love and encouragement throughout their time with me. Yellow Tree Photography loves all people from all walks of life and will always be open for business to any and all potential clients.
